    The deciding factor for me was the way they integrate with the altrider skidplate:

    Trial run with gear on the pillion rack. I ordered GL Round the World last night I was testing what I could put into the pillion dry bag and how it stayed in place.

    Yeah. For me that’s the ticket.

    I’ll post when I get mine on and after I blackout that funky little strip of silver plastic right behind the forks

    After knowing for a year that something like this must be in the works.. I ordered it the morning they announced it. Got it a couple days later and now I don't need to plug any wires into my phone any more. (I'll wire it into the bike using their adapter when I get the rest of the farkles and install my HEX exCAN.

    Rode mine to the local Royal Enfield dealer to take a test ride on a barely used 2019 Himalayan.

    Rode home on my GS.

    Turn bike on.. now greeted to this:

    Rode bike 30 miles. Didn't go away (multiple restarts).
    Disconnected battery for 30 minutes. No help.
    Hooked up OBD2 and Motoscan - says it can't communicate (bluetooth is connected succseful - it talks to the ODB fine - it can't communicate with the ECU).

    Anyone have any suggestions on things to try before I'm subjected to a 3 hour dealer journey? :cry

    the bike is making a little "electronic buzzing/humming sound" in the middle of the engine (fuel pump?)
    I don't remember if it did this before. The buzzing doesn't go away - if the bike is sitting with ignition on (engine off) for 20 minutes, it buzzes for the entire 20 minutes.
    I thought the bike went silent after a few seconds when I normally hit the key - but I never listened that closely...

    This is strike 2 with this damn computer system in 3K miles :cry

    That’s the catch-all TFT warning. It covers like 90% of the BS. Sometimes you’ll get “serious fault” and it’s red but you get that when you (I shit you not) disconnect the O2 sensor on the headers or the ESA controller coming from the shock or (gasp) the temperature sensor in the air box.

    The fact that the red fault is just me disconnecting random plugs, it makes the yellow warning seem like a joke.

    Sorry.

    The ignition has to be on to power up the modules so Motoscan can communicate with them.
